Centrally located luxury apartment

Even though we the latest 15 years have visited Italy several times a year (the latest 10 with children) it's very few places we have stayed at more than once. We have now visited Suite 18 at Villa Gradoni 2 years in a row - fall 2016 and summer vacation 2015.

Why?

(1) It's an incredibly big, lovely and well-functioning apartment with a fantastic terrace. There's (after Italian standards) a big and well-equipped kitchen (coffee machine, gas cooker, oven, nice wineglasses, okay pots and pans (but absolutely nothing that can cut). Our 2 primary point of criticism in 2015 was lack of internet and air-condition in the apartment ... but both have been fixed, so every night we would stream danish tv without problems (however the router is on the terrace so in parts of the apartment you can have troubles with the internet)

(2) The vineyard/vacation block is really nicely renovated. Very beautiful buildings, a fantastic calm in the evening, a nice pool (it was however closed in mid-October). Villa makes a great Franciacorta, and you can get a tour and buy their wines at reasonable prices. The staff is competent and service minded.

(3)Villa is very central (in car) for a lot of activities in this fantastic, quality-conscious and relatively non-touristy part of Northern Italy. Within 15 minutes by car you've got fantastic shopping (Outlet Franciacorta, Auchan by the Roncadelle A4 exit, Le Porte Franche mall by the Rovato A4 exit, etc.) lots of great restaurants in Iseo, countless vineyards that takes visitors, a surprisingly nice waterworld (Aquasplash) and not least Sulzano where the ferry goes every 20 minutes to Monte Isola. Arrive with the ferry in the morning, take a 9-10 km. hike - first to the church on top of the island and then further to Carzano and back along the lake to Peschiara. Continue a bit out of town to Pizzaria Dorada sirectly at the lake shore, and enjoy a well-earned and really outstanding pizza at the terrace in the sun. Within a 45 minutes drive you're in Bergamo Alta, in the mountains up north or by Lake Garda.

Then why only 4 stars? The view from the terrace is of a courtyard and not as you would dream of, of mountains, vineyards or the lake. There's a lot of noise and traffic during the day, since it's actually a workplace. You can do absolutely nothing without having to drive - Villa is beautiful, but the same cannot be said of the residential areas and industry, which surrounds it ... and then it's relatively expensive.

Monticelli Brusati as a holiday destination

A hike and a pizza at Monte Isola, restaurant Leon D'Oro a sunday evening filled with Italian families, purchase of Italian specialties i Auchan, a visit to Bergamo ALta and antipasti, pasta and a bottle Barbaresco from the wine cellar at L'Alimentari and a trip with the kids to Aquasplash.

Very lovely holiday complex in average surroundings.

Firstly: The complex lives up to all of your promises. Clean and very lovely apartments, a beautiful and suitably, big pool, and well kept area. Pictures don't lie!

We did travel though, at a time when the nights were around 30 degrees C and 40 during the day. We therefore would have wished we had an air condition in the apartment. I definitely wouldn't go here again, without a regulated apartment complex...

But otherwise, the place was almost without flaws.

I have to point out that, Lake Garda at Lago d'leso is really a couple of years ahead tourist-wise, and also the most beautiful of the two lakes. Without setting Lage d'leso in a bad light.

Next time I travel I want to find an apartment/house which fulfils these criteria:

1. Location with a direct look over a lake (makes the night way better).
2. Air condition in the rooms, so you can cool everything down at once.

But these are of course personal preferences, that don't necessarily fit for all.

A place with soul and charm.

We had a lovely week at a beautifully renovated vineyard. There is a lovely mood and an accommodating staff. The apartment seemed simple, but all worked well. We had a lovely balcony with a view over the mountains. Common area's including pools were clean and nice and, and it was always possible to get a lounger. The restaurant at the place was good and enjoyable.

Review of Agriturismo Villa Gradoni

Absolutely wonderful with kids. We were on Vila Gradoni in 2013 also. Since then, they have upgraded some of the common areas. We'll probably visit them again, with kids.
You have to be aware that it is a big place, with a lot of Nordic people.

Recommendations for future guests

Up the mountain, behind the court, through the forest with lunch bags. A good hike without requiring you to take the car.
We used a local barber for the boys. It was fun and cheap.
When we were headed north, we drove along Iseo Lake and via Paso Stelvio. An amazing experience.

Review of Agriturismo Villa Gradoni

This was our first trip to North Italy.
We chose 'Agriturismo Villa Gradoni', as we needed to attempt a wedding nearby. We were very pleased with that choice. It was nice and clean. Very nice area. Great vineyard, fantastic family friendly with pool and a big playground.

Vi stayed at apartment 8 the first night. It was a bit dark and with a smell of Basement. So we asked to switch the rooms, and it only took them a couple of hours. We got the apartment 10 instead. Very fast and great service! Apartment 10 was just perfect and we were very satisfied. One big bedroom with a double bed. One bedroom with two single beds. Big bathroom with shower. Our kids watch TV, Italian cartoons. He couldn't understand anything, but liked it!
Just to warn you that the two extra beds is a sleeping couch in the living room.
Very peacefully and quite. You use a key to open the port to the playground, the swimming pool a reception.
Highly recommended!

Recommendations for future guests

- Try the neighbor restaurant
- If you want to dine in another restaurant, make sure to call them first to make a reservation.
- A car is a must
- Take on the detour with wine tasting which is included in the price.
- Drive carefully as they don't stop at the stopsigns.
- Try some of the nearby outlets. A daytrip!
- Take some slippers with you, as its a bit cold without.
- A lot of vineyards with wine tasting nearby.
